LAS VEGAS — Being named the best bank in any city is an honor, but in 2017 Nevada State Bank has accomplished the extraordinary feat of winning a top honor in the state’s three metropolitan areas: Las Vegas, Reno and Elko.
“We are extremely proud that clients across the state of Nevada havenamed us as their favorite bank,” said President and CEO Terry Shirey. “We’ve been serving Nevada families and businesses since 1959. The long-term relationships we’ve developed over the years have translated into a loyal client base that helped us win these prestigious awards.
“We appreciate our clients, and it’s gratifying to know that they appreciate us as well.”
In the Nov. 12 issue of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada State Bank was named the Gold award winner for “Best Bank” in the newspaper’s annual “Best of Las Vegas” reader’s poll. In addition, the Bank won Silver for “Best Customer Service” across all types of businesses. The contest began with nominations in July followed by a three-week voting period in which readers voted for their favorites in more than 260 categories.
The first award for Nevada State Bank came in September with the announcement that it was voted “Best Bank” in Northern Nevada in the “Best of Reno” contest presented by Reno.com and Reno Magazine.
Winners of this competition were both nominated and voted on by local residents. This year more than 20,000 readers cast more than 190,000 votes for their favorite people, places, businesses and things in Reno/Sparks.
In northeastern Nevada, Nevada State Bank won three Readers’ Choice Awards in October, with readers of the Elko Daily Free Press selecting the Bank as the Gold winner in the “Best Lender” category, Silver winner for “Best Bank” and Bronze for “Best Employer, Non-Mining.”
“We are excited that our clients think so highly of us that they took the time to vote,” said Debby Herman, senior vice president/region manager of both Reno and Elko markets. “We believe it takes the best clients to be voted the best bank. We are honored by the recognition, and we will strive to maintain high standards of service in the communities we serve for many years to come.”
“We are focused on helping people in Nevada pursue their diverse dreams,” Shirey said. “Our colleagues throughout the state are proud to serve their communities, not only as bankers, but also by volunteering and supporting local causes.” Throughout the state, Nevada State Bank colleagues donate more than 5,000 hours of volunteer time each year to local nonprofit groups and community organizations.
Nevada State Bank, a division of ZB, N.A., was founded in 1959 and serves 20 communities across the state. N.A.’s parent company is Zions Bancorporation, which is included in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Financial 100 indices.
